How did you discover BUDA lab?
Eight years ago, my wife saw an announcement of open business day at BUDA lab. I went and kept coming.
What made you decide to become a volunteer?
I started repairing machines in BUDA lab, then asked for an access badge so I could keep working on it and that way I naturally became a volunteer.
What is your contribution as a volunteer at Buda?
Anything broken, I have to fix. I can't see anything broken :) I repair or optimize the machines. Currently I am working, among other things, on the large CNC router in BUDA lab.
What makes BUDA lab worthwhile, fun or special for you?
The atmosphere there is good and I can do what I like to do most. It's a place you just always enjoy coming back to.
Thanks for the interview!
